I thought that my invincible power would hold the world captive, leaving me in a freedom undisturbed. Thus night and day I worked at the chain with huge fires and cruel hard strokes.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000056396
Woman knows man well enough where he is weak, but she is quite unable to fathom him where he is strong. The fact is that man is as much a mystery to woman as woman is to man. If that were not so, the separation of the sexes would only have been a waste of Nature's energy. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000056969
I have on my table a violin string. It is free to move in any direction I like. If I twist one end, it responds; it is free.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000090427

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000095240
Only when waves fall on the shore do they make a harmonious sound;
Only when breezes shake the woods do we hear a rustling in the leaves.

Where the is no love, where listeners are dumb, there can never be song. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000095655
The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000102170
Where roads are made I lose my way.
In the wide water, in the blue sky there is no line of a track.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000214665

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000270553

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000281873

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000359241
The water vessel, taken as a vessel only, raises the question, "Why does it exist at all?" Through its fitness of construction, it offers the apology for its existence. But where it is a work of beauty it has no question to answer; it has nothing to do, but to be. -- Rabindranath Tagore

Our responsibility is no longer to acquire, but to BE. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000379883
I do not for a moment suggest that Japan should be unmindful of acquiring modern weapons of self-protection. But this should never be allowed to go beyond her instinct of self-preservation.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000420383
Yet what each one does is by no means of little moment.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000445331
If life's journey be endless where is its goal? The answer is, it is everywhere. We are in a palace which has no end, but which we have reached. By exploring it and extending our relationship with it we are ever making it more and more our own. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000447136
The world by day is like European music; a flowing concourse of vast harmony, composed of concord and discord and many disconnected fragments. And the night world is our Indian music; one pure, deep and tender raga. -- Rabindranath Tagore

My heart, the bird of the wilderness, has found its sky in your eyes. They are the cradle of the morning, they are the kingdom of the stars. My songs are lost in their depths.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000467813

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000541722
The traveller in the read-brown clothes that he wears that dust may not show upon him, the girl searching in her bed for the petals fallen from the wreath of her royal lover, the servant or the bride awaiting the master's home-coming in the empty house, are images of the heart turning to God. -- Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000566969
The fact is, those who are like everyone else arouse no hatred unless there is a reason. But when a resplendent inner self pierces the grossness that envelops it, some, quite irrationally, extend it heartfelt adoration; others, just as irrationally, try heart and soul to insult it. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000568711

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000596731

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000610457
The tragedy of human life consists in our vain attempts to stretch the limits of things which can never become unlimited, to reach the infinite by absurdly adding to the rungs of the ladder of the finite. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000613890

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000615235
The cure for all the illness of life is stored in the inner depth of life itself, the access to which becomes possible when we are alone. This solitude is a world in itself, full of wonders and resources unthought of. It is absurdly near; yet so unapproachably distant. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000615521
I remember I once told him: 'Women's minds are so petty, so crooked!' 'Like the feet of Chinese women,' he replied. 'Has not the pressure of society cramped them into pettiness and crookedness?

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000633862
The meaning of the living words that come out of the experiences of great hearts can never be exhausted by any one system of logical interpretation.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000636710
Oh! what lies we women have to tell! When we are mothers, we tell lies to pacify our children; and when we are wives, we tell lies to pacify the fathers of our children. We are never free from this necessity. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000640147

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000667033
He only has freedom who ideally loves freedom himself and is glad to extend it to others. He who cares to have slaves must chain himself to them. He who builds walls to create exclusion for others builds walls across his own freedom. He who distrusts freedom in others loses his moral right to it. -- Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000714128

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000717081
Life's fulfillment finds constant obstacles in its path; but those are necessary for the sake of its advance.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000733957

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000795934

Memory, the priestess, kills the present and offers its heart to the shrine of the dead past. -- Rabindranath Tagore
Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000802748

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes : pic 000850162
